Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: David Murray/GD members

"I wish Phil was a little louder maybe, but I always wish that." Preaching to the choir with that statement brother. I saw Murray perform at the Jazz Tent on a rainy afternoon in '94 during Jazzfest and still remember a particular quote that my wife and I, jokingly still use time to time. On the bus ride back to the hotel, I started chatting with another guy about the performance and how it just blew me away and had me staring in awe. But his reaction to the Murray performance was a little different from mine and drew a baffling look from me. He stated, "it was just a little to cerebral for me." We rode on in silence for the remainder of the ride, for I did not know how to respond to what he had just said. Different notes for different folks I suppose.
